$6M Bribe to Enroll Child in Uni?

Sorry but I am confused, yet again. Why do millionaires bribe universities to accept their children? What’s the point? Surely, if they are millionaires, their children won't need for anything? The child can brag that they attended Stanford, but ‘attended’ would be the only accurate description, if... Sign in to see full entry.

The Worst Joke of the Year

The Newsreader on radio has a habit - an annoying habit - of telling us all what day it is, like ‘this is National Quilt Day’ or ‘this is National Ice Cream Cone Day.’ Today he came out with ‘This is national StarWars day.’ ……. May the fourth be with you ……. Sign in to see full entry.

Backward Feet? Insect Ice Cream?

Did you read about the 3 year old girl who just had an operation to change her legs directions. Seemingly she was born with backward facing legs. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it. Were your parents serious when they accused you of having your head screwed on back to front? And how would feel about... Sign in to see full entry.

There is an advert on TV just now. I think its for a fungal foot infection. The female voice over says……. …….’it’s contagious. It can even be spread to other people.’ I thought that’s what contagious meant?? Sign in to see full entry.


I was sitting here, trying to convince myself that life was wonderful - which it is compared with the alternative. I was having my morning coffee and toast, when the headline word popped into my head. I used to love my morning toast, slathered with butter or marmalade. Now the toast is gluten free,...

Editing is a bit like spring cleaning

The Spring sunshine shows up all the dust and grime. You know you have to clean it or breathe it. You spend a month contemplating, but you end up going crazy with the cleaning. Why do we keep putting off things we KNOW we have to do even when we know the result is relief and relaxation. Tell me,... Sign in to see full entry.

Redacted? Do you Know what it Means?

……... to obscure or remove (text) from a document prior to publication or release…….. In other words…..TO EDIT……. As I may, perchance, have mentioned in a previous post - like yesterday, I’d just decided that editing was a waste of time. Then I see on TV that it will take days to release redacted...

Editing - A waste of time?

Big deal! I just edit 2,000 words and lose 200. The time it takes, what’s the point? A 10% reduction? That would mean editing a 200,000 word book would only save 20,000 words - about 3 chapters. Not worth it. I remembered a friend who is having to edit a whole book because she made a mistake and put... Sign in to see full entry.
